I have reservations about the impact of his parents, and personally debate whether you should be rightfully be able to claim the seven summits if you used a guide, but regardless, it's a pretty amazing achivement by someone that age to tick them all.

Fingers crossed he continues to climb for his own reasons and turns into a trad climber and alpinist with pure ethics, and perhaps aims to do them all again under his own steam.

Have a look at the world around ya. . .
Exactly! It's farked up! As shown by this story . . .
We can only hope he finds enlightenment, but with obviously very rich parents already skewing his world view, I don't hold too many hopes . . .
He'll probably end up doing the Big 14 with guides and support teams, all for a book deal . . .
The 'youngest guided ascents' mean very little in my book . . .

And can we please stop thinking of Everesty stuff as "climbing"? Crossing over from 7 summits to trad climbing?? The two things have almost nothing to do with each other!
